Alexander Wang Spring Summer 2012

It annoys me when a designer becomes so damn cool he thinks he can get away with anything, like the hideous gear Alexander Wang sent down his spring summer catwalk. Bad cycling gear comes to mind here, with awkwardly long, high waisted shorts and over use of techno fabrics. Gathers were put in the least flattering places, and some colour combinations were reminiscent of tacky ski suits. Aside from a few nice dresses, this greasy-haired show is totally uninspiring and verging on hideous.

I love…


a very sexy sporty dress, and one of the only nice pieces in this collection.

I loathe…


greasy hair, silly pockets, and long shorts worn with high heels.


a tasteless printed outfit with gathers in the wrong places.


a super tacky jumpsuit. Not nice.


a weird cycling outfit.


really ugly leather shorts. No one can look good in those, even the model.

    I reckon that Alexander Wang’s f/w collections are always much stronger than his s/s collections. His f/w 2010 collection was absolutely amazing.

    Eww, mesh and jumpsuits! Get them off my screen!
